I don't understand why @whitehouse complains when someone talks about the President's children when they also use kids to advance an agenda.—

As Twitchy reported earlier, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie today drove an even deeper wedge between himself and conservative groups by calling the NRA’s recent web video “reprehensible.” That video has been targeted by critics on the Left as well as the Right for, without mentioning them by name, bringing the president’s daughters into the fight over Second Amendment rights by pointing out that they are protected by men with guns.
It’s handy that Ariana Huffington provided the context of the governor’s remark in her tweet, or we might have thought he was talking about one of four new videos posted to the official White House YouTube channel featuring the same children who shared the stage with the president at his announcement of 23 new executive actions Wednesday. Here, for one, is Julia, 11, saying to the president, “I beg you very hard to make guns not allowed.”
How can you argue with that logic? Do you hate children? Oh, and no rush, but #NowIsTheTime.
The kids’ letters are awfully brief, so the White House has padded out the videos with comments from President Obama taken from Wednesday’s event.
It’s not really exploiting the kids, is it, because they’re just regular kids and therefore not as important as Obama’s children. Let’s just agree their value is somewhere below Obama’s kids but well above yours.
Who said American adults can feed themselves, wingnut?
Conservatives on Twitter were asking earlier when #ConservativeKidLetters would receive a similar spotlight. While we await that turn of events, here’s a thought to ponder.
Yeah, what if that happens? In America, we do not say no to cute kids. Congress might have to step in, consult that “little book” and figure that one out.
